A different dinner 4 nights a week

Wednesdays, Veg Out with Emily Zimmerman — Creative vegan comfort foods w/ fresh local & organic produce from Fresh City Farms — P.W.Y.C. after 7:30
Thursdays, Pop Up Showcase of T.O.’s best in the indie food scene, with a new feature chef each month
Fridays Invited guest chefs, amateur or professional, cook their favourite dish — it’s “open mic night” for culinary talent in Toronto

Drop-In Dinners are prepared by a rotating cast of chefs, and priced around $10-$14 (incl. tax). Dinners start at 6pm, and are served first-come, first served until we sell out, or until around 8:30. No reservations are needed or taken – just “drop in”. Seating is at one of the two big tables or at the window counters. Dinners can also be ordered to-go, and you’re welcome to bring your own containers if you like.

Every Drop-In Dinner offers a selection of hot & cold beverages, a homemade soup ($4), and a side salad ($3). Wherever possible, we provide vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten-free options. Check event listings for menu details.

The Dep is not licensed and events are not BYOB.

We’re always looking for enterprising foodies who’d like cook for a crowd and make a bit of extra cash. If you’d like to do a Drop-In Dinner at The Depanneur, click here to learn more.
